Spring Fever Giveaway ~

It's starting to really look like spring here in the desert. Today is nothin' but sun and 74 degrees. I'm in heaven! I know many of you are still stuck in snow and cold, so I thought I'd host a little giveaway to get you through till spring finally reaches you.I created these earrings with sterling silver ear wires, turquoise, quartz, and Swarovski crystal cube beads and sweet little sterling silver charms with a flower on one side and a swirl on the other. Perfect for spring... or dreams of spring.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite thing is about spring. That's all there is to it. I'll draw the winner this Friday, March 5th. Be sure to leave me a way to contact you if you are the winner. Good luck!

I love the way the sun feels in the springtime here. Its not blazing hot, it doesn't have the cool feeling of fall or the bright but cold glare of winter. In spring the sun just feels warm and cozy.

Oh, my! What beautiful little earrings! I would love to win them, heehee
What I like most about spring? Without a doubt it would have to be the wonderful smell of fresh turned earth in my garden! To me that says spring!
(and you thought it would be something about a horse, didn't you? LOL)

My favorite thing about spring is the way everything smells when the snow melts and things start to come alive again. I guess that would probably be mud. By the way, my stepmom loved the copper dogbone and turquoise bracelet that I purchased from you. Thanks for the excellent gift!

Gail said...

My favorite thing about spring is two things actually, green and warmth!

Beautiful earrings!! Love the color.
My favorite thing about spring is that it stays light later, it finally starts to warm up a bit, and everyone starts to mow their lawns, I love the smell of a freshly mowed lawn!! I can't wait!

I like seeing the beautiful flowers come out, the warm weather, and of course getting to ride. :D

Maria said...

Beautiful - I agree you are quite talented. Hard to name one favorite thing about spring, I have to go with at least 2, that is being able to retire coats and the longer days, sweet sunshine still gracing us with her presence at the end of the workday.

The flowers!!!!!!!!!!!!

Barbara said...

Evening, the earrings are to die for and would go great with my outfit for the Houston rodeo next weekend.

What I love about spring is the renewal of life.

Lovely piece of jewelry. My favorite thing about spring is the smell of hyacinths blooming, the smell reminds me of my grandmother's house

My favorite thing about spring is simply being able to be outside without 4 layers of clothes on and being able to feel your fingers when you are done working!

The earrings are beautiful!

B said...

Those are beautiful!!

My favorite thing about spring is being able to start planting transplants and seeds in the garden. I love being able to stick my hands in the dirt after a winter of planning.

Sue said...

Love the earrings!!! My favorite things about spring are the sense of renewal, getting outside with my dog and the smell of the first mown grass. Thanks!

Rachel said...

Those are beautiful!!
My favorite thing is that we start calving, oh the baby calves are sooo cute, and warmer weather, green grass starts coming, and Easter, we get to celebrate Jesus' resurection! And I get to start getting my garden ready for planting!! Oh, I can't wait....

Favorite Spring Thing - Those little Daffydil flower faces!!

South Valley Girl said...

Wow - colors like that just scream Spring.

I think the thing that lifts my heart the most around this time of year is the return of Hummingbirds to my feeder outside. I'd never seen one in person until I moved West in 1993, and they have become my favorite bird in my years here. I recently moved from Albuquerque's South Valley (hence the name), where, if I'd stayed for last summer, I would have had 100+ at my feeders. A veritable whirlwind of Hummers would greet me every day as I pulled into the driveway, and practically drag me from my car. "WE'RE HUNGRY!!! WE'RE ALWAYS HUNGRY!!! FEED US RIGHT NOW!!!!!"

Darling earrings! My favorite thing about spring is the sense of rebirth -- all the green & life that starts to appear again. -Tammy

Dorita said...

Spring: Tiny, new, bright green growth on barren limbs; birds gathering material for their nests; more sun to soak up; round-tailed ground squirrels emerging from their underground homes; desert wildflowers in bloom.

Karen B. said...

I love the feeling of the world being brand-new again.

Jennifer said...

I love how everything starts greening up, buying fresh new flowers for my yard. Getting the garden ready, longer days and the warmth!

Sweet little earrings....my favourite part of Spring is that the bunnies get outside once again and they get all excited, espeacially when they dig past the loosened snow to a patch of brillant green grass...and they sit there in the sunlight munching away on their new found green treasure:D Can't beat that:D

Kacie said...

My favorite thing about spring is actually all the MUD! I love it because that means that the SNOW is finally in the process of melting! Also, I loved to "play" in it a lot as a little girl wearing my tall rubber boots. I loved to watch it squish around my boots and feel it try to suck them off after each step.

Love the earrings. My favorite thing about spring is new life. After the long winter months everything is dark, dormant and cold. Everyday in spring brings some sort of new life. Whether it be a crocous, buds on trees blooming, grass growing or new little animals that all start to be born in the warmth of spring it gives me hope a much needed change and excitment for life!

What I love most about spring is the 'fresh' smell in the air. It just smells new and clean!

Gorgeous earrings! You have such talent!

jacksonsgrrl said...

The way I become totally, deliriously happy and ready to take on the world. Every single spring this happens, and every time it does I wanna just shout, "Yipee! It's here, spring's here!" Green, warm, green, warm, RIDE!!! :)

Beautiful, Just Beautifully done...

The thing I truly Love about Spring is going outside and taking a Deep breath...You can always tell when Spring is here by the Smell in the Air. It's just different. Moist, Fresh and Good for the Soul.
Truly the Best time of the year going for walks and seeing the fresh greenery growing in the streams and the Forest Floor slowly but surly coming alive

The thing I love about spring is the chance for a new beginning - new hopes, new dreams. It's like starting over with a clean slate, a time for renewal.
